In the Melancholic Dislocation exhibition at the Cercle Cité, Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil present an installation that suggests a romantic vision to the viewer, approaching the Ratskeller from a deconstructionist viewpoint. Redirected and fragmented, the spaces find themselves in an intermediate state, a dazed condition in which their forms evoke melancholy. Both alienating and nostalgic, the piece is not only subject to an extreme slowness; it is also informed by a sense of timelessness. It aims to immerse us in the disconnection inspired in us by the sites we enter without invitation, places where everything is dislocated, shifting slowly from one state to another. Decorum in decline, these objects and walls bear the stigmata of a movement as imperceptible as it is inexorable. An immersive project inspired partly by the duo's rich experience in the film world.
Left to their own devices, visitors can share a common destiny with the place, imbued with this state of abandonment. This penetration of a unique space as an intruder is how the artists propose that visitors approach the installation Melancholic Dislocation.
The installation by Martine Feipel and Jean Bechameil was commissioned by the Cercle Cité and the Luxembourg City Film Festival, and will be presented at the Ratskeller during the festival.
